Human Subject Protection

Know your rights.
Understand the researcher's responsibilities.

You cannot be involved as a subject in research unless the investigator has obtained your informed consent. An investigator must provide you sufficient opportunity to consider whether or not to participate in clinical research. You have rights and should be aware of the responsibility of the researcher to protect your rights.
